“Nice Sunbreeze Hotel and great Hugh Parkey diving”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Several members of a dive group stayed at the Sunbreeze Hotel for a week at the end of December/first of January. As many reviewers have stated, the hotel is located in a very convenient location within walking distance of everything in San Pedro. The hotel isn't fancy, but it is nice and clean with spacious rooms, the staff is wonderful (one example: I emailed the hotel to ask a question and received a very personal response in less than an hour!) , and the onsite restaurant consistently presents tasty food. Because the weather wasn't often good for utilizing the pool, on the few occasions I did use it, it was extremely clean and never crowded. The pool water was too cool for my taste, but that may have been due to several rain storms which kept filling the pool with cool, fresh water. Sunbreeze seemed better suited for adults, although there were a couple of families with children staying at the hotel. With the exception of the pool, there didn't seem to be much for children to do.

The dive shop at the hotel, Hugh Parkey's, was excellent. The managers and all the staff assessed the skill level of all the divers and planned dive sites based on the needs of the group. They all truly cared about divers having a good time--and, most importantly, about their safety. Huge numbers of dive shops are in the area, so it is imperative to choose wisely and find a shop whose staff is as conscientious as Hugh Parkey's! These folks were truly professional--and fun!

We used Mayan Air to travel from Belize City to San Pedro. The operation seemed to be disorganized, but I have nothing else to compare it to since this was my first visit to Belize. Overall though, I would research the differences between Tropic and Mayan Air before deciding on which carrier to use.

I would definitely stay at the Sunbreeze Hotel again because of its cleanliness, great location, and helpful staff.

SunBreeze is a very good small hotel with a central location in San Pedro. It is on the beach directly across the street from the airport and one block south of the bustle of the main street of San Pedro, yet once you enter the hotel grounds it is very quiet and the outside world is left behind. The grounds are small but nicely tropically landscaped. There is a nice sized pool by San Pedro standards. The rooms are large with a comfortable bed, wifi and they get most every U.S. cable station. The deluxe rooms have a small fridge. There is a small sitting area outside each room. The staff is very friendly. The problems are that there is only a very narrow beach and as everywhere on Ambergris you can't swim in the water off the beach because of the sea grass. You can't sit on the beach and you don't really get much of a beach feeling as the central courtyard doesn't have much of a beach view as it is blocked by the pool area which also feels removed from the beach.

We spent 10 days at the SunBreeze Hotel over the 2011/2012 holiday. They arranged our flights to and from Belize City. The location is excellent, great place to walk to restaurants and shops in San Pedro. The room was clean, well maintained and the air conditioning worked (something many Caribbean hotels struggle with). The pool is well maintained and the grounds equally well maintained. It's not a fancy place, but it's friendly and very well kept up. The staff is helpful and friendly. The attached restaurant is excellent. We'll almost certainly go back.

We stayed for a night before flying out from the airport (right across the street). Very good restaurant (ate there about 4 times in a couple weeks on Ambergris), great staff, decent room. Be sure to check out Chris down from the front desk as he is a very talented artist and all around nice guy. Also check out the dive shop just beside the restaurant (Hugh Parkey's ) as the staff are also great & knowledgeable.

Stayed here last March, and now in December. Perfect spot on beach and close to restaurants and boats for hire . Nice friendly staff, rooms simple but large and clean. Ask for first floor room. Very nice pool next to bar. Restaurant on site a bit expensive but other options a five minute walk. Free early morning coffee between 5-7 am. Wil be back in a few months to stay again. They do offer lower rates to repeat customers. We met the general manager, very nice lady and very hands on. Cannot go wrong at this hotel.

Room Tip: Get on lower level.

On the beach, close to town, walking distance to everything. Across from airport but not noisy, Nice restaurant. Bar had great service. Hot water and tv spotty in room but overall pretty darn good. And they had free wifi in the rooms.
